HBO Casts the Handsome Family for ‘True Detective’ Theme Song
"Far From Any Road" first appeared on the alt-country band's 2003 LP 'Singing Bones'
On January 12, while Matthew McConaughey continued his transformation into the Greatest Actor of His Generation by winning a Golden Globe for Dallas Buyers Club, HBO premiered the 44-year-old comeback king’s latest project: True Detective. The new gothic anthology series stars McConaughey and Woody Harrelson as two Louisiana cops whose investigation of an occult-related murder spans 17 years. Viewers were eased into the surreal, Southern mystery via the Handsome Family’s “Far From Any Road,” a haunting highlight from 2003’s Singing Bones that has found a second life as the hour-long drama’s theme song.
Below you’ll find a stream of the full song, followed by a True Detective parody starring Warrior cats.
